Subaru Rally Team USA – XGames 13 – Travis Pastrana

Subaru Rally Team USA driver Travis Pastrana and co-driver Christian Edstrom won the Bronze medal in the X Games 13 Rally Car Super Special event. Pastrana, driving his BFGoodrich Tires-shod 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI missed out on a shot at the Gold while challenging Hollywood stunt driver and Rally America competitor Tanner Foust. Pastrana crossed the finish line first, but was disqualified for crossing over into Tanner’s lane. The crowd and the SRT USA team members erupted in celebration at Pastrana’s victory before hearing minutes later that race officials would disqualify Pastrana for the crossing into Foust’s lane. “I was really happy with how we drove, and our Subaru and BFGoodrich Tires were amazing,” he said in the paddock, bent and bruised rally cars everywhere. “Look at these cars. It was demolition derby out there. I drove my best and still crossed the line first. It was the wrong line, though! But they made the right call. It made for a good show I bet, but after winning the Gold last year, taking home Bronze this time around is hard to swallow.”
